Chelsea Youngster Denies Barcelona Rumours

By on November 11, 2011

Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu says a move back to Barcelona is not in his thoughts and is concentrating on improving at the Blues.

Barca have a £12m buy-back option for Romeu, who sold the youngster to Chelsea in the summer for £5m, and reports suggest they may look to enforce the clause in the summer. The La Liga champions have implemented this type of clause with many of the youngsters that don’t make the grade at the Nou Camp. But the youngster says:

“I am not thinking of returning to Barca now or in the future. I have a very good opportunity here, with a great level of teammates.

“I must be attentive and focused to improve in London. I hope I do well, playing minutes and we’ll see what happens.”

      This is all very well-said IMO.I know you’re talking about news aecignes so I hope you don’t think it’s OT for me to bring up some blog stuff. I noticed when my blog was email-only I got much more thoughtful emails than I typically see at other “mommy blogs” with open comments. It’s like people who had to take the time to do a little bit of extra clicking usually wrote far better stuff (not always in agreement or anything) or at least stuff I was more interested in (personally I have never gotten much from comments like [[[ hugs! ]]] for example, altho’ of course hugs are very sweet). I finally opened comments on my blog after much pressure from readers. Ironically THOSE who said I *should* have comments, because my posts were too “one-sided” (um, it’s an online journal, not a prescriptive series of writings, but wevs) haven’t actually commented. I do like the caliber of my comments and the discussions that have occurred so Yay, comments stay for now.Re: blogging and moderating comments, I recently read and thought it was a good 101. Maybe you’d like it too.Congrats on your new blog!
